A thief stole a woman’s credit card at an Avenue M dental office on Dec. 12 — to buy gifts for her kid, investigators claim.

The victim told police that she left her credit card inside a procedure room at the business between E. 18th and E. 19th streets at 3 pm, and that the only two people inside were the suspect and her child.

When police interrogated the suspect, she admitted to taking the victim’s card so she could purchase presents, according to documents from the District Attorney’s office.
